Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease results in >19 million deaths annually, and coronary heart disease accounts for the majority of this toll. Despite major advances in treatment of coronary heart disease patients, a large number of victims of the disease who are apparently healthy die suddenly without prior symptoms. Available screening and diagnostic(More)

Elevated levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate and the presence of its receptor, N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor type 1 (NMDAR1), have been established in patients with tendinopathy, i.e. chronic tendon pain and degeneration. However, whether NMDAR1 is up- or down-regulated in tendinopathy and co-localized with glutamate is still unexplored. We hypothesize(More)
OBJECTIVES To report outcomes after sclerosing, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and autologous blood injection therapies as a treatment for tendinopathy. METHODS We searched Pubmed for clinical trials on sclerosing, PRP and autologous blood injections for tendinopathy. We scored the quality of the studies using a modified Coleman Methodological Score (CMS)(More)
A device and a method are described for the simultaneous in vitro evaluation of several important parameters of root canal preparation, including root canal cleanliness, straightening, changes in root canal diameter, working safety (loss of working length, apical blockage, instrument fracture, and apical perforation), measurement of apically extruded(More)
We analyzed the changes in lateral ligament forces during anterior drawer and talar tilt testing and examined ankle joint motion during testing, following an isolated lesion of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) or a combined lesion of the ATFL and calcaneofibular ligament (CFL). 8 cadaver specimens were held in a specially designed testing apparatus(More)
The aim of the present study was to characterize the performance ability of the leg extensor apparatus in a group of athletes with jumper's knee and to compare the results with those of a matched control group without knee symptoms. Patient and control groups (12 players in each) were selected from a population of 141 well-trained male Norwegian volleyball(More)
